Employment standards

AMA Group is committed to meeting employment standards for our employees. We regularly review our employer obligations towards our employees.

Remuneration practices

We meet our employer obligations by:

  • providing fair remuneration for employees’ skills and experience to ensure we attract and retain talented team members. This is reviewed upon commencement of employment and through the annual remuneration review across the entire AMA Group
  • regularly reviewing remuneration practices to ensure we meet our obligations, including but not limited to minimum wage, pay equity and award compliance reviews
  • upskilling and training our people on employment standards and obligations.

Remuneration equality

In FY23. AMA Group submitted a group-combined report to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) with the People Committee overseeing and reviewing the report and its insights. The FY23 WGEA report continues to provide the opportunity to review and analyse gender pay equity across the entire Group with no significant gender pay gaps identified.

We have continued to educate our Talent Acquisition team and people leaders on gender pay equity. This, along with the introduction of the AMA Way Code of Conduct, people leader training on Secure Jobs, Better Pay and  Respect@Work, will set AMA Group up as an attractive employer for women and for all team members.


AMA Group has continued our focus on training and developing our team with initiatives including the launch of our Frontline Leaders Program, Lunch ‘n’ Learn sessions for people leaders on a range of topics and Mental Health First Aid Training.

Workplace health and safety

We take the health, safety and environment of our Teams, our sites, and the communities in which we live and work very seriously.

As such, in FY22 we developed an entire, bespoke, safety management program from scratch; from incident reporting (AMAlert) to high-risk equipment maintenance, through to first aid and safety warden training. We are committed to proactive safety awareness and continuous improvement.

Take the LEAD is a behavioural change program, specifically designed by and for AMA Group. The key focus of the program is to empower all Team members to take the lead on their health and safety.

The program aims to improve overall safety culture from being reactive and dependent, to independent where all employees lead by example, lead with care and lead by choice.

LEAD is an acronym for:

  • LOOK out for hazards and unsafe practices to create a safe working environment
  • ENGAGE with Team members so everyone is aware of risks and can recognise safe behaviours
  • ACT quickly to manage incidents and injuries and
  • DEBRIEF and share learnings from incidents by consulting all Team members.

Monthly Take the LEAD campaigns target key injury themes in the form of educational toolbox talks. Information is provided to every team member on safe ways to complete tasks, as well as the most appropriate equipment and  personal protective equipment to be used.

Proactive defect reporting via QR Codes also ensures that high risk equipment including hoists, mobile plant and spray booths remain in good condition, reducing the risk of a serious event from occurring.

Responsible Repair Standards – repairing to manufacturer requirements

The design and construction of motor vehicles is continually evolving, and it is critical that all repairs are carried out in accordance with the latest applicable industry standards and codes of practice to ensure the safety of our Team and the vehicle owner.

Due to the complexity of different types of substrates used in the construction of vehicles, OEM repair methods must be followed as the vehicles are designed to react in a specific way in an accident. Once repaired, the vehicle must react the same way if involved in another accident. Even windscreens are part of the overall makeup of the vehicle strength. Further, the increasing use of Automated Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) has added another dimension to repair requirements. Following repair methods and standards take the guesswork out of the repair process and ensures that we return our vehicles in a safe, pre-accident condition.

Following repair methods also ensures the safety of our Team. For example, disengagement / reengagement of electric vehicles must be completed by trained technicians before and after repair, following specific steps.a
